At the height of our economic excesses a few years back, you couldn’t throw a stick in this town without hitting a doggy boutique stocked to the whiskers with canine clothing. For some, this was a way to lavish attention on their fur-children, and you’d frequently see Fido lounging at Pinkberry in his best Burberry. For others, outfitting four-legged friends stripped them of all their dignity — but come on, these are creatures that snack out of the litter box. Either way, the financial constraints handed down over the past five years have relegated doggy duds to mostly special occasions, and the most special of these is the annual Easter in the Park Festival and Pooch Parade at Lee Park (3333 Turtle Creek Blvd.). On Easter morning beginning at 10 a.m. you’ll see the area’s finest mutts strut their stuff in amazing Easter finery. You’ll see bonnets, bunny costumes and, if history serves, pets dyed like PAAS masterpieces. The event features a parade of adoptable critters, followed by a judged procession of costumed canines. If you’re inclined to gussy up your best friend in Easter grass and pastels, fork over $10 and register starting at 11 a.m. Or, just be a bystander and gape at the spectacle. The parade starts at noon. Food, beverages and live entertainment are available until 5 p.m. Visit thestriponcedarsprings.com/events.html for more.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
